  4. Next on the OhioLINK Authentication Form, enter your "Name" (first and last); "Barcode" (student identification number preceded by the letter "s"... e.g. s123456789); and "PIN" (Personal Identification Number - set by default to the last four (4) digits of your Social Security Number) and "Submit" that information too.
  5. A brief message about the success of the authentication process should appear after which you'll be taken a search menu for the database you selected.
